Foundation Degrees

All RAC foundation degrees have been developed in consultation with industry professionals to provide a flexible route into and through higher education. They combine a stimulating mix of the academic and practical, through work-based activities.   The practical skills elements will give you the experience you need for that crucial headstart when seeking employment.  You will learn not only the how but also the why or in other words put practice into theory.

These programmes may be studied either on a two-year, full-time basis or part-time over four years and are often delivered in partnership between the RAC and local Further Education colleges.

In short you will be able to:

  • Combine work-based learning activities with academic skill on programmes which meet industry needs
  • TOP UP  on to a full Honours Degree on successful completion of the Foundation Degree
